Our Review

Like War Horse, this stage adaptation of another Michael Morpurgo novel features a farmyard of animals represented by actors manipulating puppets. It also revolves around a child -- in this case a girl rather than a boy -- undergoing a journey to recover a lost pet, in this case a cat instead of a horse that had been seconded to the war effort.
